5 Ways Non-Medical In-Home Care Can Help Seniors
If all that was necessary for seniors to take care of their health was to visit with a doctor twice a year, this world would be a lot more convenient. Sadly, that is not the case. Our health can become quite complicated and inconvenient for us as we enter our senior years. But, often, seniors and their families don’t do everything they can to make their lives easier, healthier, and more convenient. And one thing that can really help seniors improve their lives is non-medical in-home care. Here are five of the biggest benefits of non-medical in-home care.
Non-Medical In-Home Care Makes Life More Convenient
First, let’s define non-medical in-home care. Non-medical in-home care is a type of health care that consists of a caregiver coming to see clients in their homes and attending to their needs. Non-medical in-home care is available in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. Instead of having to leave their homes and move into a special community or facility, the elderly in the Pittsburgh/Fox Chapel area can receive care in their own homes.
Non-Medical In-Home Care Offers a Wide Range of Services
Not only is non-medical in-home care very convenient, the list of services offered is remarkably long and varied. Care providers can help with everything from:
- assisting with errands
- preparing meals
- leading clients through prescribed exercise routines
- helping clients get in and out of bed and wheelchairs
- helping clients use the bathroom.
- And much more
Non-medical In-Home Care is an Easy Sell to Seniors
After deciding that an elderly loved one requires senior care, many families start looking at nursing homes and assisted living communities. While facilities like these can offer great services, many seniors’ do not want to move to them. But non-medical in-home care is far more appealing to many seniors. When seniors know that the don’t have to leave their homes, they are much more positive about getting the care they need.
Non-Medical In-Home Care is Customized
Non-medical in-home care is inherently personal because, with a caregiver working with you in your own home, there’s a higher degree of personalization and customization of the care that you receive. Non-medical in-home care providers are able to establish a great rapport with their clients.
Non-Medical In-Home Care is Affordable
If you want food delivered to your home, it will cost you extra. Delivery is more convenient and convenience costs extra. But not with non-medical in-home care. This is because there are no rents or fees to pay to a senior care facility. You need only pay for the care that you receive. Because of this, non-medical in-home care is often significantly cheaper than the other alternatives.
